Had some time before picking up my sister at the Sacramento airport so I stopped by Pushkin Bakery for a haul. Pushkin is a DEDICATED wheat/gluten free bakery. They now have a park-let with seating outside and serve sandwiches and hot foods (some food items contain diary). I opted for the dessert counter (which is gluten free and dairy free).
It was great to look over my previous review so I was less likely to order the same thing twice or order something I didn’t really care for.
TL;DR stick to the cupcakes, scones and cookies.
- Strawberry rosemary cupcake ($3.75) – see review below
- Strawberry rosemary scone ($2.90) – see review below
- Chocolate crinkles ($2.99) – Delicious! see previous review
- Brownie ($2.99) – see review below
- Blueberry lemon scone ($2.90) – see review below
- Dudes ($1.95) – These are amazing (PB & chocolate chips!) see previous review
- Banana chocolate chunk muffin ($2.99) – see review below
- Blueberry cobbler ($2.99) – see review below
- Lemon bar ($2.99) – tart and very lemon flavored. The crust was a little grainy. Received this last time for free, probably won’t get this one again.
Strawberry Rosemary cupcake was pretty darn good! People who enjoy sweet and salty at the same time will enjoy this very much. It had a strong rosemary flavor accompanied by a salty topping frosting. It had one or two small chunks of real strawberry in the cake and a few pieces of rosemary leaves. Overall it was light and delicious.
Strawberry Rosemary Scone was unique and good. It tasted like pie dough, wasn’t a noticeable grainy texture like some other products of theirs. The combination of strawberries and rosemary is great! There were only a few chunks of strawberries and it had a rosemary flavor throughout.
Brownie fudgy, chocolate but so sad it’s grainy.
Blueberry Lemon Scone was good for a gluten free scone. It is dense, tastes like pie dough, not very sweet and has plump blueberries. It has a slight grainy texture.
Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffin tastes like chocolate chips with a mild banana flavor, but it’s not the typical moist banana bread that I’m accustom too, even when it’s made gluten free. It was dense and dry, almost grainy.
Blueberry Cobbler had plump blueberries throughout. The grainy flour was noticeable throughout which detracted from the experience of cobbler.
As you can see from the photos below, there were many other options to choose from. I don’t think you’ll go wrong by ordering anything here.
